now to debate those issues, chuck schumer of new york and newly elected republican senator ted cruz of texas. welcome back as senator cruz to "meet the press." back to both of you. i want to start on the gun debate. because as i say, even before the second term is officially underway thissy is bait is well underway. here are the highlights of what the president wants to accomplish. universal background checks. he'd like to pursue a ban on high capacity magazines. an assault weapons ban that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records wh
sides, chuck schumer, dick durbin, john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, you game it a lot of folks whose names you'll recognize at this announcement. this plan, we're told would provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens already here in america. and our chief correspondent campaign carl cameron live from capitol hill. >> comprehensive immigration reform has basically been stalled by gridlock for almost a decade. republican and democrats have been going forward. tomorrow the president will announce some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the ill
cooperation. and here is the president now with charles schumer, the senior senator of new york. >> mr. schumer i believe is in charge of the congressional committee that puts the inauguration on. he'll be speaking before the president takes the oath this morning. of course, there will be no lack of conversation on this trip to the capitol. of course you'll have the vice president there. he can always be counted on to -- if there's a gap in the conversation, he'll fill it. >> it will be something to see whether between the vice president and senator schumer the president can get a word in edgewise on this short trip up. it's about 1.6 miles. i'm reminded that abraham lincoln once said about this trip, he said i have always been told that i'm going to hell, but i didn't realize it was two miles up the road with a dome on top of it. i'm sure all presidents feel that way from time to time. the president's armored limousine now moving past the entrance to the west wing and will soon be on its way out of the white house grounds and up pennsylvania avenue. senator schumer who is riding with
a call to democrat chuck schumer and said let's get the ball rolling on this again. and i'm told that they had about five meetings, this group of bipartisan senators, six total, and they were -- now eight, too that came in and out. and they wanted to come up with this. and, yes, of course, we have seen this before, but i'm talking to sources on both sides, they say there is still a lot left undone, left on the table, but very, very sticky issues like with border security, like with the path to citizenship, but there definitely is a feeling they're closer now than they have been in years. look at the scene here. there are lots of press conferences here in capitol hill. but look behind me, how many cameras are here. this is definitely standing room only. this is -- this is sort of the place to be on an issue like this. and the senators who are putting this together, brooke, they did this on purpose. when i say this, meaning they wanted to come out today, monday, the day before -- >> the day before the president. >> reporter: has his big event tomorrow in las vegas, because they wan
in part deal with sequestration and deal with the issue of -- >> but senator schumer, the reality is the president is willing to throw the long ball on this big sunday of football, when it comes to gun control. and yet because of his view of republican recalcitrants, he doesn't step up and show real leadership and be proactive on a big spending cut proposal and medicare put proposal because he doesn't want to go there. why throw the long ball when it comes to gun control but not take a leadership role when it comes to spending cuts? >> well, he is. in the negotiations up to the fiscal cliff, the president put things on the table. $400 billion in medicare cuts. he was talking about change cpi, which -- >> you're talking about more revenue. that's not big enough on medicare cuts according to simpson-bowles and others. >> we have already done $1.7 trillion in cuts. we've done $600 billion in revenues. you're going to need more revenues as well as more cuts to get the deficit down. and i've talked to leader reid. i've talked to budget chair murray. we're going to do a budget this year
, senator schumer said, we'll do a budget. >> great. finally. it's been four years. >> but this is what he said has to be in it. >> you're going to need more revenue as well as more cuts to get the deficit down. i've talked to leader reid. budget claire murray. we're going to do a budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. and our republican colleagues better get used to that. >> so this is still a fight between how much spending cuts and how much taxes. the president got his -- >> well, simpson 3w0-bowles sai let's get rid of the high tax rates. the president doesn't want that. you had $1 trillion in tax increases with obama care. new tax increases at the beginning of this month. and now they are calling for even more tax increases, and they are not calling to cut spending. they are calling for spending increases. so basically what they're saying is, they want americans to pay more so washington can spend more. that's not going to help the economy, and that is not going to close the gap and balance the budget. the reason we want to balance the budget is not to make the numbe
with the kind of credibility with the troops that chuck hagel has. >> chuck schumer, speaking of chucks, another chuck, ari, chuck schumer, as you know, a very strong supporter of israel, very tough on iran and its nuclear program. he had a private meeting with hagel, emerged strongly endorsing hagel, saying he'll vote to confirm him. you read that long statement that schumer put out on what he was told by hagel during the course of that private meeting. i rey sum that's reassuring. i assume that's reassuring to you. is it reassuring enough for republicans to vote to confirm him? >> no, i think hagel has broken the land speed record for the most apologies on a way to a hopeful confirmation. i've never heard of a nominee who has apologized to so many different people for so many different positions he's took over his career in order for him to get confirmed. i suspect this is more a confirmation conversion than anything heartfelt from hagel. that's why he's saying this. explaining away everything. if i were a senator, what i would do with hagel is keep my questions very short, make no speeches an
. that will be awe great compliment to what senator fine sign and senator schumer and others are working on because it's the compliment of these types of changes. >> there's no cream to be a straw purchaser and to take weapons from a state like -- a southern state and bring it up to new york and sell it out of your truck to criminals. there's no law that says you can't do that, and so now we're giving law enforcement the tools they need to go after these criminals and these criminal networks to make sure they can't be selling the guns right out of the back of a truck. >> what about background checks? what about registration? >> huge. the backgrounds bill is vitally important. senator schumer has been working on this issue for a very long time. what his bill, did ch i co-sponsored, others will as well, is going to basically say you can't buy guns without getting a background check. today about 40% of guns are purchased without a background check, so that means if you have been kwigtsd of domestic violence or are greyly mentally ill or have a record of violence, you could buy a gun off the internet o
on getting spending down. >> here is the leverage question. senator schumer said we didn't just get our revenues. we got some. there has to be more that are part of it. the president will say that. so as you are -- >> are we for more revenue? no, we are not. >> even if it's from tax reform? >> if you keep raising revenues, you're not going to get different tax reform. i know you didn't want a chart, but i'm kind of a chart guy. this dream line shows you the historic taxes. the red line is tax increases. the red line, where spending is going. spending is the problem. revenues aren't the problem. if you keep chasing higher spending with higher revenues as they're calling for, you're going to hurt economic growth. you'll never catch up. you'll shut down the economy and you won't get the budget down. >> when you were campaigning in virginia, a state you wanted to carry but didn't, you said, look, these sequestration cuts, these automatic spending cuts that are put in place because republicans and democrats can't agree, so you have to have this sword that comes down, you said we're not going
have marco rubio on the same page as chuck schumer. yes, we told you pigs are in the air, and senator schumer has high hopes for this proposal. >> we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> but like everything else in washington, not everyone is on board. take republican senator mike lee. he quickly issued this statement in opposition to the gang's plan. here's what he said. reforms to our complexy and dysfunctional immigration system should not in any way favor those who came here illegally over the millions of applicants who seek to come here lawfully. the problem is without reform, there are 11 million people who are undocumented who are living in this country right now, and you can't just support them all. that's why everyone has hit a big wall until the pigs started flying today. miguel marquez spoke to some young people today, and here are their stories. this issue is very personal. >> three yo

: what do democrats say about passing a budget today. >> reporter: chuck schumer said the senate would pass a budget this year. the battle will be over spending cuts and what is included in that very budget. yesterday with the top congress alleaders at his inaugural luncheon president obama called for working together. >> i recognize that democracy is not always easy, and i recognize there are profound differences in this room, but i just want to say thank you for your service, and i want to thank your families for their service, because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives, i know that all of us serve because we believe that we can make america for future generations. >> reporter: first challenge will be that debt ceiling vote tomorrow the first of many fiscal issues to be tackled in this new term. >> reporter: let the games begin. mike emanuel, thank you very much. what is the likelihood of a senate budget resolution. coming up minutes from now we'll speak to one senator who filed a balanced budget amendment today, republican senator mike lee of utah joins us. jon
of folks want the border secure and verifiably so before the other programs go forward. chuck schumer, the ranking democrat, said they say it is time to put partisanship aside and democrats are not looking to use this as a leverage in wake of the election which hispanic and latino voters were favoring democrats, not so in the case of republicans. the g.o.p. recognizes they need to do something. democrats are saying they you will not play political football. >> we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that soxes the problem and becomes law. >> they put their marking on it today and the president will lay out his proposals. the senate majority leader, harry reid, before the news conference announcing the plan came out, said the so-called gang of eight proposal would be a major, major priority and will get it on the senate floor and pass it as soon as possible perhaps by spring. so a lot of momentum. we have not heard from the president and house republicans who control that side of the capitol who will have their say on border security and how t
that's unfolding right now. and today the lead democrat of this measure, new york senator chuck schumer talked about it in terms that will have some concern for amnesty. opponents because, in effect. amp the hurtles are cleared. they would be allowed to stay. watch. >> immediately, when the bill passes. people who are here living in the shadows, would get a legal right to stay here and work. they would no longer be deported provided they don't have a criminal record. >> well, supporters say that that provision that they don't have a criminal record in addition to a background check, in addition to paying fines, paying taxes and going to the back of a whole series of lines, be it for work or residency or ultimately a green card and citizenship means that it's not amnesty. that's going to be debated once again aprogressively and it all starts tomorrow when the president lays down his marker, shep? >> shepard: on his plan, karl, something similar to this of that on the house or exactly the same thing or, what? >> well, we don't actually know. the president and the administration has signal

, it sort of blows my mind when i look at the roster here. we have chuck schumer of new york, we have dick durbin of illinois, robert menendez of new jersey. and on the other side, we have serious conservatives like jeff lake and marco rubio. left/right coalition on immigration, mark. how does that work? >> i think it speaks to the ideological diversity of our country and, actually, the evolution of the senate now. and, you know, you see senate republicans that used to treat compromise like a dirty word and now they're coming out and putting forward a proposal with their democratic colleagues that to a large degree mirrors the key principles that the president has identified. i do agree this is a golden opportunity for senators like marco rubio and with the other guests that mentioned that, but i do disagree that the president hasn't shown leadership here. he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform as a key priority of the first, you know, as the beginning of the second term. so i think that what the senate democrats and republicans have done is gotten out in front and tryi

. the house seems to have made something move. you hear chuck schumer on the sunday show saying oh, yeah, we're going to do a budget. all of a should the glacial activity in the senate is sliding, it's moving. >> what the house republicans managed to do is sort of shame the senate democrats into action, and it was funny watching chuck schumer talk about it. he almost talked like, oh, they were manning on doing this anyway, which to me suggests that at least finally they were somewhat embarrassed about the fact that as you say they have not passed a pwupbl net fou budget in four years. i can't think of anything that is more basic or fundamental that the whole congress must do every single year if you want fiscal sanity. jon: they are legally required to do so under the constitution. >> that's just a technicality, come on, jon. jon: in you don't have a budget if you spend way beyond it nobody notices it because there is no benchmark, right? >> it's absolute insanity. no household would operate like that. if a company were to do this it would go out of business immediately. such is the situatio
to have a senate budget has too often been described as just a minor procedural matter. senator schumer, who explained recently, said, well, the democrats did have a budget because there was a budget that came out of the sequester agreement in mid-2011. now, never mind that the senate hadn't had a budget that spring or the spring before that or that the parliamentarians said that the sequester deal wasn't a budget. somehow coming up with one number was supposedly good enough to be a budget. that's like if you sat around your kitchen table and had a discussion about how you're going to spend the money, here's how the discussion would go. "okay, i think we ought to spend x amount of money. that's the meeting. we've just decided that's what we're going to do." and that's somehow the budget? and particularly when x amount of money didn't relate at all to the amount of money coming into your family. nobody believes that would make sense. we'll see whether senator schumer's words this weekend will produce a budget. the house has acted. the president says he wants the debt ceiling increase. ho
